Locals say that you might find more than 100 ice streams – regarding that, we couldn’t wait to check this out.
After our arrival in the megacity Chengdu at an outside temperature of +19°C we lost our hope to find some ice. But with every kilometre closer to the highland northwest of Chengdu it got colder and the air thinner…
Looking back to an amazing and very inspiring time in Tibet with many incredible moments on ice and even more incredible moments with local people.
